"Rebel Yell" as written by Steve Stevens and Billy Idol....
Last night a little dancer came dancin' to my door
Last night my little angel came pumpin' on the floor
She said, "Come, baby, I got a license for love
And if it expires, pray help from above"

Because in the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more
With a rebel yell, she cried more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more

More, more, more

She don't like slavery, she won't sit and beg
But when I'm tired and lonely, she sees me to bed
What set you free and brought you to me, babe
What set you free, I need you here by me

Because in the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more
With a rebel yell, she cried more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more

He lives in his own heaven
Collects it to go from the 7-11
Well, he's out all night to collect a fare
Just so long, just so long it don't mess up his hair

I walked the walls for you babe
A thousand miles for you
I dried your tears of pain
666 times for you
I'd sell my soul for you, babe
For money to burn for you
I'd give you all and have none, babe
Just-a just-a just-a just-a to have you here by me


Because in the midnight hour, she cried more, more, more
With a rebel yell, she cried more, more, more
In the midnight hour, babe, more, more, more
With a rebel yell, more, more, more

    General CommentThere's a live version of this on one of the cky's. It's Bam and Ville fucking belting out this song so loud and so hardcore and it's one of my favourites.

    General Commentthis song is an extra feature on cky 3. and is pretty good. if you have yet to seen HIM live i suggest you catch them next time they come around. this performance will give you an idea of their shows, minus the bam.
